They are drawn from the leading orchestral education programs across the sector, and foster strong connections with their orchestra members. Furthermore, a team of SYO tutors work with each orchestra several times each term, providing small group mentoring and specialist instrumental guidance. These tutors are drawn from professional ensembles such as the Sydney Symphony, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Opera Australia Orchestra, and freelance professionals.
